Southern Migration

Southern Migration

Today’s Image: Why did the salmon cross the road? I found this image posted on a bulletin board at the University of Alaska. The caption at the bottom reads, “A chum salmon tries to get across Skokomish Valley Road yesterday to re-enter the Skokomish River north of Shelton, Mason County, and continue upstream. It and others, upper right, seemed to wait for the wake from passing vehicles to dash across the road from flooded fields.”

A picture is worth a thousand words. What words come to mind as you look at today’s image? Resilience… Perseverance… Stamina… Adaptability….

I will also be migrating today, as I head south for my next summer adventure. Follow me as I head for the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and begin my Geoscience adventure through the state of Wyoming. (See the GEOS 898 link under the 2011 Summer Adventures link.)
